Carmen is a determined, bright, and energetic young lady. A social butterfly, she has a broad range of diverse friends. Carmen loves her school, does well there, and wants to stay connected with classmates after her move to an adoptive home. She enjoys doing arts and crafts, playing with Barbie dolls, and wearing pretty dresses.
Carmen hopes for a family that has other children, attends a Christian church, and has pets. She would like to have a cat and a dog. Like most girls her age, Carmen would appreciate helping to care for a baby. Mostly, Carmen expresses a desire for parents "who love me" and "are nice," and a home where she knows the rules and can quickly adjust.
The team for Carmen will consider parents who are mellow, experienced in parenting children who've had a tough start in life, and able to work with a committed team of professionals to help her reach her full potential. Carmen needs parents who can help her maintain connections with her siblings and other people important to her.
Carmen’s sister, Yashira, is also featured on the Heart Gallery of Alaska. The girls’ team will consider placing them together, with the right family.
